Reflexology for Fertility

Helping to relieve stress and encouraging relaxation at the deepest level!


Struggling to conceive?

Over the past fifteen years, I’ve worked with numerous couples experiencing fertility issues and have seen how stress reduction and changes to lifestyle can lead to a happy outcome!


  • We’ll discuss your menstrual cycle, current health issues and diagnostic test results and assess your current lifestyle choices. I’ll then offer guidance and support, including practical tips that may help.

  • You’ll be shown self care hand reflexology techniques to support you.

  • I’ll provide a listening ear - as I know that being on a fertility journey can often be a lonely place.

    Improving your overall physical and emotional health will help prepare your body for pregnancy and may optimise your chances of success.

    Please get in touch here to schedule your session.

    “We both want to say a massive THANK YOU for all your help getting us to this dream come true...”

    Katy B., Saffron Walden

    Reflexology works in a subtle way on a physical and emotional level and can be especially beneficial for those experiencing fertility issues...

    It can take a healthy couple several months of trying for a baby before becoming pregnant, so please try not to worry if things haven’t happened for you yet.

    So many factors affect fertility, but over the last fifteen years of working with clients, I have seen how lifestyle and nutritional changes, plus stress reduction, can improve overall health and make a difference - and in some cases that can mean THE difference!

  • "I can't thank you enough for helping me with my fertility journey - both the reflexology and the long chats were absolutely invaluable and I doubt Jemima would be here if I hadn't come to see you for treatment."

    Becca N., Little Dunmow


    The term infertility is used when conception hasn’t occurred after 12 months of trying for a baby...

    You may have had tests showing that there is nothing wrong with either you or your partner and have been told that you have ‘unexplained infertility’.

    Or you may already have a child, but are finding it much more difficult to conceive this time around - commonly known as ‘secondary’ infertility.

    Hormonal imbalance conditions (including PCOS and endometriosis) can be implicated in female factor infertility, as well as physical abnormalities - such as blocked fallopian tubes or scar tissue - which may be caused by pelvic inflammatory disease.

    Male factor infertility may be caused by sperm issues (either a low count or morphology/motility issues), a physical abnormality or damage caused by illness or medical treatment.

    "I initially saw Clare in August as I had been diagnosed with PCOS. My partner and I were trying to conceive but hadn't had any success. Clare gave me some good advice on diet and lifestyle, which I took on board. I hadn't had a cycle for 5 months and after just one reflexology session this happened! I became more regular with my cycles and in December found out I was pregnant {after 9 sessions of reflexology)!"

    Causes of Infertility

    The ability to conceive depends on many factors, but it's more likely to happen if you and your partner are both in good health...

    The effects of modern life can have a significant impact on fertility and you may identify with some of these issues...

    • Work-related stress
    • High alcohol intake
    • ‘Binge’ drinking
    • Erratic eating (skipping meals)
    • Poor diet and high intake of 'convenience' foods
    • Recreational drug use

    • Being over-weight
    • Being under-weight
    • Excessive (or not enough) exercise
    • Long working hours or shift work
    • Regular long-haul travel
    • Use of anabolic steroids
    • Smoking

    Article - Reflexology - can it aid fertility?

    “What a journey... 18 months ago I started seeing Clare for fertility reflexology. She helped me get in the right frame of mind, not just at the sessions but in my daily life, taking stock of my diet, stressful job and general ways. The journey continued into maternity reflexology luckily and that's where my weekly/biweekly sessions were invaluable to help manage morning sickness, SPD and to help me to relax. Me and my little daughter Isla can't recommend Clare enough."

    Vikki J., Wimbish

    Stress and Infertility

    The anxiety over fertility issues can add significantly to your stress levels and you may have become trapped in a cycle of expectation and disappointment every month...

    It is very common to feel isolated and get upset when you find out that friends, family members or work colleagues have become pregnant.

    You probably feel despondent and think that it will never happen for you. These are all perfectly normal emotions, so please don’t feel guilty and try to be kinder to yourself.

    It may seem like everything is a struggle right now, but how would you like to let go of the worry for a while - and possibly enhance your fertility at the same time?

    I believe that the relaxation provided by reflexology sessions, practicing self-care and sensible lifestyle choices, have played a crucial part in the positive outcomes I have seen.

    “ I was on clomid for a bit, which I found to be a nightmare and was starting to get very down about not being able to conceive... I truly believe that if you had not treated me then I would still be trying now... I can't thank you enough for all those afternoons of treatment, not just the reflexology but also for listening to me and advising me and stopping me from going mad!"

    Alice T., High Easter

    Hormonal Imbalance and Infertility

    Reflexology treatments seem to have a very positive effect on balancing hormone levels...

    Feedback from those attending for regular sessions has shown the following improvements :

    • Regulation of the menstrual cycle
    • Re-establishment of the menstrual cycle for those with amenorrhoea - usually after long-term contraceptive pill use
    • Reduction in PMS symptoms - including bloating and irritability
    • Less discomfort for those with dysmenorrhea
    • Reduction in pain caused by endometriosis
    • A more condensed menstrual flow

    Enhancing your Fertility

    “Thank you so much for my session. It not only made me feel very relaxed, it made me change my outlook on everything!"

    Emily R., Saffron Walden"

    Reflexology works in a subtle way on a physical and emotional level and is especially beneficial for those struggling with fertility issues.

    The calming and soothing effects of reflexology will gently relieve stress and tension and could be a crucial first step in ‘letting go’...

    I believe that any emotional blockages need to be addressed and perhaps lifestyle adjustments made, to allow you to move forward.

    Reflexology may also:
    • Enhance your body's own natural healing abilities
    • Encourage all body systems to function efficiently
    • Assist in the elimination of toxins from the body

    Plenty of time will be allowed to explore lifestyle choices during your consultation and a treatment plan will be devised.

    Support for Assisted Conception

    Are you are going through fertility investigations, or about to embark upon an Assisted Conception programme?

    I know it might feel as if you are on an emotional roller coaster, but reflexology sessions will encourage you to stay calm and positive through the ups and downs of your treatment.

    As your therapist, I’m here to provide a‘ listening ear’ and emotional support throughout your journey...

    "After trying to conceive for 2 years and a failed IVF attempt, I contacted Clare for reflexology, just before my second IVF attempt. Clare was welcoming and immediately put me at ease. During our sessions not only did I feel relaxed from the reflexology, Clare also provided a confidential space for me to talk openly about my fears about trying IVF again. Clare offered flexible appointments to fit in with my treatment and seemed as excited as me when I eventually fell pregnant! Needless to say I continued to see Clare for reflexology right up until my son was born and recommended her to my friends. Thank you Clare!"

    Sarah B., Great Dunmow

    Reflexology can be particularly beneficial in the time leading up to egg collection and embryo transfer. Sessions will encourage deep relaxation and help ease anxiety.

    This may help reduce stress hormones, which could improve your chances of success.

    Wondering whether reflexology could help with your particular fertility issue? I’m very happy to answer any questions you may have, so please get in touch here.
